The Occupational Safety and Health Administration Recordkeeping Regulation (29 CFR 1904) requires employers to prepare and maintain records of work-related injuries and illnesses. Covered employers are required to complete and post the OSHA Form 300A, Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses by February 1st. The form must be visible to employees and prospective employees until April 30th.
Las year, new recordkeeping and reporting rules were adopted. The list of industries that are exempt from the requirement to routinely keep OSHA injury and illness records, and the list of severe work-related injuries and illnesses that all covered employers must report to OSHA were extended. The new requirements went into effect January 1, 2015. As a result, the instructions to fill out the OSHA Form 300A have been revised to clarify these changes. Specifically, the new instructions clarify the three methods of reporting and when employers are expected to report fatalities, inpatient hospitalizations, amputations or job related loss of an eye.
